A Safari Guide in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe
The author’s ancestors first came to southern Africa in the early 19th century, and have played a role – sometimes a prominent one – in the history of European settlement of the continent ever since. Among those early ancestors was the extraordinary Henry Francis Fynn, one of the party of adventurers who founded the town of Port Natal, which later evolved into Durban.

The Zulu War Sketches of an Artist on the March: John North Crealock
In Victorian times, it was to an officer’s advantage to be good at sketching. This is subject was not only on the syllabus at Sandhurst but also at the Army Staff at Camberley until the Anglo-Boer War of 1899–1902, and later. The reason was the British Army seldom had properly surveyed maps of wherever it was fighting, and so an important part of the duties of a junior officer and of a trained staff officer in particular, was to be able to produce a good sketch map and panorama for his commanding officer.

The Veto of Four Per Cent of the Governed: The Ill-Fated Anglo-Rhodesian Settlement Agreement, 1969–1972
The 1969 republican constitution of the Rhodesia was intended to secure recognition for Ian Smith’s 1965 UDI. Given the evasion by significant nations of the trade sanctions imposed by the UN, the gamble was that this de facto recognition would become de jure. But it was unlikely because the framers of the 1969 constitution rejected the aim of progress to majority rule through a qualified franchise.

Military History / African Studies / World War I
The past is brought to life in this historical epic about a South African family whose lives collided with the biggest event in history: the First World War. The central theme is the largely forgotten East Africa campaign, but by definition a world war has a wide reach. Five members of one family with deep roots in all four corners of the country, served in three different theatres of war. Their lives on active service are all interwoven and inseparable from the home front. Global events are juxtaposed with everyday life on a farm in the eastern Orange Free State.
